Oh, Fleabag. The hot priest. The pencil haircut. The closing
scene. I don't think there has ever been a show that dominated the
pop culture conversation and captured the nation's hearts quite
like Fleabag. When it was confirmed that the second season
would be the final one, a collective mourning was palpable on
Twitter and in offices alike. Fortunately, creator Phoebe
Waller-Bridge keeps giving us a little more...And now we have a
book to clutch: Fleabag: The Scriptures is filled with the
filming scripts, stage directions and new writing from PWB herself.
It's a sacred text, if ever there was one. * Red Magazine *
Featuring an insight into the show's delightfully funny stage directions and a number of previously unheard set secrets, this collection of scripts and behind-the-scenes notes from Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a must read for fans * The I *
There's a good reason television screenplays aren't often sold as mainstream books - "Man enters room, looks around" isn't necessarily soul-capturing stuff. But it's worth making an exception for Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag: The Scriptures, naughtily bound to look like an old Bible. The show confirmed her skills as a comic actress, but seeing the words in black and white crystallises her brilliance as a writer who can so expertly build the comedy of a scene to bursting point. It's often very moving, too * Evening Standard *
